Welcome to our health information series
“The Learning Brain”!

Each week in BCPVPA’s member newsletter eNews, we will share tips, links and self-assessment tools that will help you to better understand the mental health continuum, and to use the resources that are available to you. All of the links and tips will be available on this site.

“Mental health is a state of well-being in which the individual realizes his or her own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life,
can work productively and fruitfully and is able to make a contribution to his or her community.”

CMHA  (Canadian Mental Health Association)

The Learning Brain series will recommence in the Fall. Have a great summer!
